1Title:  Women's Equity Action League Records     
 Creator:  Women's Equity Action League 
 Dates:  1969-1984 
 Abstract:  The Women's Equity Action League (WEAL) (1968-ca. 1989) was a national organization founded in Cleveland, Ohio, committed to combating sex discrimination and advocating for economic equality for women through education and litigation. WEAL was an offshoot of the National Organization for Women and took a more conservative stance on issues such as abortion rights and the Equal Rights Amendment. The organization's membership remained small throughout its duration but benefitted from the prestige of the high-profile women in academia, business, and government who joined WEAL. Growing out of WEAL was the Women's Law Fund, a non-profit organization co-founded in 1972 by attorneys Jane M. Picker and Lizbeth A. Moody, both professors at Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. The Women's Law Fund evolved out of divisions within WEAL concerning the mission, structure, and funding of the organization. The collection consists of administrative records, articles of incorporation, by-laws, correspondence, financial records, legal records, memoranda, minutes, a mission statement, notes, press releases, promotional materials, and other public relations records, and reports.
